"not every show needs queer characters"
well not every show needs 25 straight white carbon copies of the same characters from every other show ever aired in the history of television yet here we are with ten thousand of you on tv and one of me if I’m lucky
how dare you eat a feast, throw me a bone while I’m starving, and then tell me to be happy that I’m finally equal to you you spoiled entitled brat
if you honestly identify with someone based off such superficial aspects of their identity like sexuality or race and not because of the genuine content of their character, you’re kind of an asshole.
making hostile generalizations about people based off superficial aspects of their biology they have no control over doesn’t help your point much either.
okay no do you literally not understand that there are huge aspects of my life and experiences that are different from a hetero person’s because i am not hetero
there is more to being queer/nonwhite/a member of a marginalized group than “superficial aspects” and representation has a huge impact on the self-image and self-worth of marginalized people and also on how those people are viewed by others
only someone coming from a place of extreme privilege (having ‘ten thousand of you on tv’) can dismiss such things as “superficial” so kindly stop with this bullshit
there is no non-bigoted reason for there to be so many cishet white people in our media. the world is not made of cishet white people. our media should reflect that.
Wow. Notatruescotsman can go fuck themselves.
My experiences as a queer woman are not “superficial.” You’re just an asshole who wants to ignore and undermine any experiences that deviate from what you perceive as normal.
